SERIE A REVIEW 2015-16 WEEK 2: Roma hand Juventus theirsecond loss in as many matches while both AC and Inter Milan win.


Hello everyone and welcome to the Serie A Review where the game is played with style!!


Roma handed Juventus their second consecutive defeat with a 2-1 win. Bosnian internationals Miralem Pjanic and Edin Dzeko got the goals for the Romans while Argentinial newcomer Paulo Dybala replied for the Bianconeri. Roma dminated play for the most part although Juve fought back. Roma just showed what they can do while Juve dont seem as strong, the way Roma dominated was telling. Well only time will tell.


Inter Milan beat a stubborn Carpi team 2-1, the goals for the Neroblue came from super Montenegran international Stevan Jovetivic with both goals. The reply for Carpi came from Italian Antonio De Gaudio. Two wins in row for Roberto Mancini lets hope it continues he is a good coach. Carpi are newcomers and will have to play better at home to keep them from falling back down


Ac Milan got an important victory of 2-1 over Empoli. The goals for the Rossoneri came from newcomers Brazilian Luiz Adriano and Colombian Carlos Bacca while Italian Riccardo Saponara replied for Empoli. A very close and tough game Empoli contrlled the play while AC where very opportunistic. After a first loss a much needed win for the fragile Milan team, Empoli is still looking for their first points of the season in spite of playing well.

Fiorentina got beat by a very strong Torino team in a score of 3-1. Torinos’ goals came from Italians Emiliano Moretti, Fabio Quagliarella and Daniele Baselli the reply for the Tuscans came from Spanish Marcos Alonso.
Judging from this game Torino will be a force to reckon with this season they exposed Fiorentina’s defence over and over. It will be interesting to watch them. Fiorentina still have a good team they are usually slow starters.
In other Scores
Lazio got a drubbing 4-0 at the hands of surprising Chievo Verona. the goals we’re scored by Riccardo Meggiorini, Alberto Paloschi with two and Valter Birsa with the other one. Chievo is on fire with two lopsided wins in a row against strong teams. While Lazio who are playing in the Champions have two losses in a row. They seem to be going in different directions for sure.
Napoli had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Sampadoria while Genoa defeated Hellas Verona 2-0. Sassuolo continue to impress with a 1-0 road win against Bologna while Palermo beat Udinese 1-0. Finally Atalanta got their first win of 1-0 over newly promoted Frosinone.

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 23: Juventus hits a snag, Roma and Napoli fail to capitalize

102114_2052_SerieARevie2.jpg                       Hello everyone welcome to the Serie A Review


Juventus hit a snag drawing Cesena 2-2, Italian international Claudio Marchisio and Spanish Alvaro Morata got the goals for La Grande Signora while ex Juventino Italian Franco Brienza and Bosnian hopeful Milan Djuric replied for Cesena. Juve played a good game although they met stiff competition on this day, this is only the 7th time this season that they have not gained the full 3 points. With Roma also drawing the top two spots remain unchanged. Cesena for their part are enjoying a good moment and can now hope for salvation, they have not lost in three consecutive games.


Roma continue their struggles at home by drawing their fourth consecutive game this time with lowly Parma 0-0. Not much to say about this game although the Romans dominated possession the Parmiggiani had more opportunities to score. Roma who are having all kinds of problems scoring don’t seem a threat for Juve at this moment. Their coach Rudy Garcia who must be feeling the pinch of playing the country’s capital must find the right combinations up front or they can kiss the Scudetto goodbye. Parma for their part showed some good stuff in this game however I do think they are destined to go down notwithstanding a little miracle


After some great results Napoli hit a wall in Sicily by going down 3-1 against Palermo.  Moroccan Lazaar Achraf, Italian Luca Rigoni and Argentinian Franco Vazques scored for the Sicilians while Italian Manolo Gabbiadini who continues his torrid pace replied for the Partenopei. A game to forget for Napoli they held possession very well they did not create much although the keeper for Palermo was called to make at least two great saves. Palermo are surprising everyone they are practically unbeatable at home and are moving dangerously close to Europe.


Fiorentina defeated Sassuolo 3-1 to move closer to the top three. Egyptian international Mohamed Salah and Senegalese international Khouma El Hadji Babacar with 2 got the goals for the Viola while Domenico Berardi replied for Sassuolo. Fiorentina who are enjoying a good moment put on a great team effort on this day and they are inching closer to the third spot, bodes well for their upcoming matches in the Europa League. Sassuolo who are having a good season for their standard did not play a bad game however they played a stronger team and it showed. Although they must continue to believe in themselves if they want to progress.


Inter Milan snapped a bad sequence with a convincing 4-1 trumping of Atalanta. Newly acquired Swiss Phenom Shaqiri Xherdan, Colombian Freddy Guarin with 2 and Argentinian Rodriguo Palacio got the goals for Neroblue while Argentinian Maximiliano Moralez replied for the Bergamasci. An important win for Inter and Roberto Mancini that will hopefully give them a boost for the remainder of the campaign. After a good season last year Atalanta are struggling to find their form they must get some points or they will be in danger of going down.

In Other Scores


AC Milan continue to struggle drawing Empoli 1-1, Pippo Inzaghi has his hands full

Genoa continued their torrid pace with a clobbering of Hellas Verona 5-2

Lazio got back to winning ways by defeating struggling Udinese 1-0

Sampadoria who seem to be on skid at the moment lost Chievo Verona 2-1

Last but not least Torino and Cagliari played to a 1-1 draw.

Serie A Review 2014-15 week 22: Juventus tames AC Milan Roma finally get a win

images (7)

Hello everyone welcome to the Serie A Review where the beautiful game is played with style


Juventus continue their march towards the Scudetto with a 3-1 win over their eternal rivals AC Milan. Unstoppable Carlos Tevez, Spanish Alvaro Morata and Italian Leonardo Bonucci scored for the Bianconeri while Luca Antonelli replied for the Rossoneri. Although possession was somewhat split Juve we’re rarely in danger, their dominance at midfield was evident once again. Right now they look like an unstoppable train. AC on the other hand lost an opportunity to get closer to a European spot. The way they are playing I doubt it, after sacking Clarence Seedorf the hope was to improve on last year however seems the opposite has happened, they are stuck in the middle of the standings with no hope in sight


Roma finally got a win after a string of draws, a victory of 2-1 over Cagliari. Serbian Adem Ljajic and Argentinian Leandro Paredes got the goals for Giallorossi while Belgian newcomer Paul-Jose M’Poku replied for the Sardinians. A well-played road game for the Romans who controlled possession and where in total command of the game. Hopefully this game will turn the fortunes around for Roma who must remain focused if they want any chance of catching Juventus. Cagliari for their part we’re coming off a good stretch and must not let this defeat bring them down if they want to remain in Serie A.


Napoli continue their assault on 2nd spot with a decisive 3-1 win over Udinese. Newcomer Manolo Gabbiadini, Belgian sensation Dries Mertens and an own goal by Frenchman Cyril Theroux who in fact also got the goal for his team. Napoli are enjoying a good moment right now and with a little help could find themselves in 2nd spot before the season’s end. Udinese for their part are continuing their sea-saw season, they must improve if they want to progress in the standings, in my view.


Fiorentina climbed to 4th spot with a tough win of 3-2 over Atalanta. Argentinian Jose Maria Basanta and Italians Alesandro Diamanti and Manuel Pasqual scored for the Tuscans. Diamanti who is recently back from China had an instant impact on the team bodes well for the Viola. Ghanaian Boakye Richmond Yiadom and Italian Davide Zappacosta replied for the Bergamasci. An important win for Fiorentina which sees them in 4th place right behind Napoli. In my view with Juve, Roma, Napoli and Fiorentina being 1,2,3,4 in the standings is probably a prelude to the final standings.


Inter Milan snapped their losing streak with a 3-0 trumping of Palermo. Argentinian Mauro Icardi with 2 and Colombian Freddy Guarin got the goals for the Neroblue. Guarin had a fantastic game as did Icardi. After a string of bad results a much needed win for the Neroblue. They have not been able to string together any kind of positive results at best a sea-saw season for the Interisti. Roberto Mancini is a great coach however he will need more time to turn the team around. Palermo for their part are playing well and in spite of the loss are surpassing every expectation this season.



In other results

Torino continue their impressive drive with 3-1 drubbing of Hellas Verona

Genoa continue their impressive form with 1-0 win over Lazio in Rome

Sampadoria and Sassuolo who are both playing beyond expectation this season settled for a 1-1

                                                                                                  Lastly Chievo Verona defeated Seir B bound Parma 1-0
